The first official photos from director Mark Waters‘ Mr. Popper’s Penguins, starring Jim Carrey and Carla Gugino, have made their way out via USA Today.
Mr. Popper’s Penguins centers on a high-powered businessman suddenly inherits six penguins. As he gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, Popper’s life quickly unravels: his swanky New York apartment is turned into a snowy winter wonderland, the deal he’s long been working on is derailed, and he almost lands in jail.
The film is an adaptation of a 1938 children’s book. Also stars Ophelia Lovibond, Philip Baker Hall, Andrew Stewart-Jones, James Tupper, Clark Gregg, David Krumholtz and Angela Lansbury.
Mr. Poppers Penguins is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
